Louie Schwartzberg Named AAAS-Lemelson Invention Ambassadors

Earth Day Network Board Member Louie Schwartzberg was recently named an American Association for the Advancement of Science Lemelson Invention Ambassador for 2016-2017. Schwartzberg is an award winning cinematographer, director, and producer whose notable career spans more than three decades. It provides breathtaking imagery via his time-lapse, high-speed, and macro cinematography techniques. Louie’s recent theatrical releases include the 3D IMAX film Mysteries of the Unseen World with National Geographic, narrated by Forest Whitaker, and the documentary Wings of Life for Disneynature, narrated by Meryl Streep. Mysteries is a journey into invisible worlds that are too slow, too fast, too small, and too vast for the human eye to see, while Wings of Life focuses on pollination and the web of life. Louie also directed Soarin’ Around the World, an international update to the original Soarin’ ride now showing at Disney Parks in Anaheim, Orlando and Shanghai. Designed to inspire, educate and evolve our perspective on the world, Schwartzberg creates and curates Moving Art videos, which can be found on your smart phone and Netflix. The Moving Art series will be expanded from six to thirteen videos in early 2017.
